Expanding on Garrett's answer: APR 1.0 changed the size of apr_off_t on
most platforms to allow 64-bit file offsets. We are very happy about
this change in principle, but if we were to change the recommended APR
version between svn 1.0 and svn 1.x, apps built against svn 1.0 wouldn't
necessarily work properly against svn 1.x. (Both the APR API and the
svn API make use of svn_off_t in places.)
